We all know the loathsome post-vacation blues and how hard it can be to return to our boring, daily schedule after a fruitful vacation. And let’s admit it; everyone wants to stick with that relaxing feeling one gets while on holiday.


How about bringing that holiday feel in the comfort of your home? That way, you’ll be able to proudly say that every day in your life is a holiday! Nothing to speak of the fact that it will cost you way lesser than your paid weekend getaways and will last for as long as you want it to. So, it’s time you challenge and channel your creative energies into creating your vacay-spot in your home.


First things first- tidy up your place. Wash the dust, scrub away the dirt, give your garden plants a neat trim, and remove any cobwebs. Throw away any broken furniture, paint your walls if you want to, and do whatever it takes to make your place cleaner. Cleaning is about creating a cozy atmosphere that makes you want to stay and not run away to another location, giving you comfort. Get that comfort now!


Where do you go for a vacation? In the lap of nature. Well, it’s time you bring that nature home. Indulge in some garden decor; contact your local landscape designer or DIY. Color coordinate your plants to make it a themed garden. Plant fragrant plants like jasmine or lily of the valley that make your garden smell like heaven so you can enjoy your retreat by walking around your park.

A spa is the ultimate, most desired vacation retreat that anyone needs. You can use your outdoor space to build a hotel to enjoy a rejuvenating spa evening whenever possible. If not, you can also turn your regular tub baths into spa baths. After all, nothing beats a good hot soak in a tub.


A vacation means taking a break from your immediate surroundings. While building a staycation retreat at your home, it might get difficult to hide it from the eyes of your sneaky neighbors. Invest in screening and panels that provide your outdoor retreat space the privacy it needs. Also, plan a digital detox day with your family to enjoy nothing more than each other’s company.


It would help to get the lighting straight to get your vacation mood right. Imagine being welcomed through a dim-lit pathway to a hot bubble bath amidst green, flowery, and fragrant plants. Is relaxing imagery enough? Do not forget to install dim, soft-colored lighting for your private, at-home spa zone.
